Quick College

Quick’s rich history of community events and the amazing collage of residents reaches back to the 1920’s. An enormous bank of knowledge and skills has accumulated in our local area. The recently formed Quick College provides opportunities to share those skills.  This can take the form of a club, workshop, retreat, field trip or an activity yet to be imagined.  Quick College Coordinators Margie Waldie & Sue McDiarmid are at the ready to support facilitators/instructors to design, publicize and deliver as needed.  Upcoming Quick College events are communicated via email notices, posters, and on the Round Lake Community Association website Quick College page. The current poster with information and registration directions is attached:

In brief, this is what is coming up in the Spring Program.


Ukelele Lessons

Join Philip and Donna Harness on the porch at Round Lake Hall (weather permitting!) on Wednesday evenings, 7 p.m. starting May 17 through to June 7. You will learn basic technique, simple strumming, and chording so that simple songs may be played, and possibly more advanced techniques, depending on class progress.

Those who own a ukelele should bring it along to the first class. Those who do not, are strongly advised to wait until costs and sources of good quality instruments are discussed at the first class.

Cost is $20 for 4 lessons of 60+ minutes. Payable at the first class. Please register by May 10th by emailing Quick College, or phoning Sue at 250-846-9390.
